THE HIGH WHITE CLOUDS

The High White Clouds

The High White Clouds play original guitar led rock and roll just for the hell of it.

In the tradition of the Stones, The Black Crowes and Primal Scream, they love the blues, gospel, soul and the rock sounds of the South. But like the Kinks and the Faces they don’t forget who they are or where they’re from. Think powerful riffs, songs you’ll end up humming, cry-baby solos, euphoric outros and dance infected rhythms.

What goes around comes around. So loosen up, let go and enjoy… It’s only rock and roll…

VOKSAL
